The gallery takes about 2 hours to walk through and has an eclectic collection. The cafe is average but the art makes the visit worthwhile.

The artists tell their own personal stories. What an amazing experience to see the history of Cuba through their work and perspectives.. Not to be missed.

We visited this museum with an English speaking, Cuban national, guide. It is a beautiful collection and the history of art in Cuba was fascinating. This was actually a highlight for me in Havana sites, just for some history and perspective of the Cuban culture.
